Pisacco Milano - Dining Room

Pisacco could have possibly just become my favorite restaurant in Milan. The restaurant is the result of a collaboration between an eclectic group of people including an architect, an art collector, a lawyer and a Michelin-starred chef, and it shows. It’s understated, refined but not stuffy, and the food rocks. The dishes are generally quite […]

Cascine Orsine - Grape Vines

Some months ago I got it in my head that I wanted to have/organize a harvest party. I’m not really sure what I decided why this idea came into my head. It was like the result of a variety of outside forces that led to this idea. But who, what, where, how was I going […]

al fresco - sign outside

It’s Fashion Week here in Milan, and I felt like I should write something about it. But I’m not a fashionista, after all this is a blog about food and travel and love. So in homage to this electrifying week so crucial to my adopted city,  I’ve decided to write about a restaurant where fashionistas […]

Via Brera sign

To say this past year was emotionally and physically trying would be kind of an understatement. Fortunately, in the process, I’ve learnt a tremendous amount of things, including how important it is to sit back, relax, and enjoy quality time with friends and family. Yes. I know we all know how great and important that […]

Terrace - Ostello Bello

Last Tuesday I did a mini staycation all about discovering or rediscovering beautiful locations here in Milan called the #3hMilan Tour. Created by Valentina from Via Col Viaggio in conjunction with Stamp Travel #3hMilan began at perhaps Milan’s most memorable landmark the ‘Duomo’ and ended at the Mercato Metropolitano.   It’s a great tour to […]

trattoria del nuovo macello - dessert

You know those moments when you are so hungry that you can’t think. Or even worse you’re so hungry you could chew someone’s head off. Not literally, because you don’t want to eat them, but you are in a mood where you can tell them where to shove it and then some. I was there. […]

antica barbieria colla - mosaic 2

I’m in love with a Barber Shop. But not just any barber shop, Antica Barbieria Colla. First opened in 1904 it pretty much embodies everything I love about Italy: history, quality, attention to detail… Walking into the store is like walking back in time. But while sometimes that can seem awkward, or ill placed or […]

cenaconme-focetola-11

The flash mob dinner party has returned to Milan! And as one would expect from the Milanese/Italians it comes with a heavy dose of style. Accordingly, this years edition of Cenaconme  (“Have dinner with me”) is all about the hats, Chapeau!  The slogan being “se non potete essere eleganti…siate almeno stravaganti!” “if you can’t be […]

It’s August in Milan and the city is empty. I think it’s fair to say about 70-80% of the stores are closed, especially over the central weeks of the month. The only people still around are a hand full of people in the essential services (like a few nurses) and tourists that didn’t know any […]

This year’s Villa Arconati Music Festival ended with a bang! The dancing began with the incredibly talented African American artist Gregory Porter. Seeing him perform on stage makes it hard to imagine that this dream job as a child was an office job with the government. L’ultima serata di Villa Arconati ha regalato vere emozioni. […]
